Agreed. Someone must have ordered a chrome P13 and wanted the convenience of the earlier P-series (and then-current P15) brazed-on cable stops - complete with left-side routing, which is contrary to the right-side routing that Schwinn used for the P15/10 centerpull models.

I thought about this myself when I used to own both a '70 P13 (first gen) and a second-gen '72 P13, both in chrome. The Campagnolo top tube clips may have been the trend at the time (and allow for cable routing flexibility), but they're a hell of a lot fussier and clutter up what's otherwise a neat top tube.

Also - I can't remember off the top of my head - but were the stock Paramount P15 guides slotted by '72?
